Well I am really stupid. I thought Rami was gay.
His wife/Girlfriend is gorgeous


I don’t think it’s a surprise that he won.

With 3 to go, I’m 18 out of 21. But these last 3 are some of the toughest of the night. Too many good films.

Wait?! The Academy thinks Olivia Colman's performance in "The Favourite" was better than Glenn Close's or Lady Gaga's? What is going on??? Granted, her performance was amazing, but was it really that much better than the other two? I'm stunned!

In Entertainment Weekly's survey of anonymous Oscar voters I linked a few days ago, 3 of the 6 voters they polled said they were voting for Colman for Actress, so it's not a complete surprise. She seemed to have a lot of support.

Yup, after all the plans to make the show shorter they cancel all those plans and still end up with one of the shortest broadcasts in recent history.
